Get in

Get around

The resort itself is not very big, so you can easily walk on foot or rent a bike. There are a number of bus stops around the town serving the larger town of Wladyslawowo and Puck along with the Hel Peninsula. Since few years, each bus with the line number shown on front display is reliable and you can check their routes and timetables on the PKS Wejherowo site (during the holiday you should use the podczas wakacji szkolnych <during school holiday> links). If driving, note that the main road through Jastrzębia Góra is cobblestone and quite narrow.

Taxis for the resort have to come from Władysławowo and may not be happy if you call them out for just a short journey. Negotiate a price if travelling long distances and check with your hotel who may have a contact for a reliable taxi driver.

See

Visit the resort's small Oceanarium and the old lighthouse in Rozewie (just outside the town), which is open to the public. Once in Rozewie, do not miss the Lisi Jar (Fox Gorge) - a large, natural ravine of outstanding beauty, which will take you right down to the sea coast.

Do

The resort has excellent sandy beaches which can be reached after a short forestry walk. Access to the beach is very steep in some places and may not be suitable for people with disabilities. There is one beach entrance, also steep but acceptable for families with children in prams or pushchairs, located at the end of Droga Rybacka. Walking along beach is a must - even early morning and late evening.

Sunbathing and swimming in the sea is the biggest attraction of Jastrzębia Góra beaches. Of course it depends on weather, which could be surprisingly good (warm and sunshine for long weeks) or opposite - very awful (raining non stop for few days). You can see that lots of people are going to beaches even if it is cloudy and not very warm - and this is typical for Polish seaside. Do not hesitate then to try bathing in sea.

Buy

There are very few shops in the town but many stalls selling souvenirs, clothing and beach equipment.

Eat

There are a number of good eating places, mostly open stalls in the summer.

Be prepared to stay in long queue of cars when riding to Władysławowo. You can use also an alternative road while driving to Władysławowo via villages Tupadły, Mieroszyno, Strzelno, Łebcz (here turn left into Młyńska St.), after few kilometers, when the road ends at crossroads, turn right and then immediately left into Żwirowa St. This road will help to save your time and nerves, also you can see beautiful sights of Polish Pomerania region villages.

On the Hel Peninsula:

When travelling to Hel town (a city, which is literally surrounded by the sea), it is good idea to use train. Quite new diesel trains are departing to Hel each 60-90 minutes. The journey take about 20 minutes. Avoid long distance trains arriving from cities all over Poland, they might be really crowded, otherwise you can take part in an adventure of travelling squeezed between people and their rucksacks and bikes.
